With KB banhammered, all the nazis being ignored and laughed at rather than engaged and educational material everywhere, the forum has gotten noticabley less toxic and more useless. We need to fix this.

How do you define Nazi? Is it the actual definition? IOW, a person who advocates for State and private corporation partnership driven economies along with a rah-rah nationalism? Or do you define it the way some anarchists do: anyone who is not in favor of social maxism is a Nazi.

Nazis have become more famous for their racism than their economics, so... No?

@eturnage, tell that to the whire supremacists waving Nazi flags in Charlottesville.

I'm willing to be they know more about the racism of Hilter's regime than the economic policies. In this discussion, i feel technically isn't particularily relevant.

But i mean, by your definition, the political establishment in the US has been following a Nazi ideology for decades. I mean, technically.

Stressedlines (1509 D)

alright Orathaic, lets ask this a different way

Hypothetically, If a person thought fascist economics was great, and called themselves such because of that, but could care less about the racial aspects that have defined it now, what do you call them? Ie, someone who was black, and married to a white person (or the other way) but thought Fascist economics was great What do you call them?

and no, the US has not been following an Economic Fascist ideology ever.

Look at the US's military-industrial complex. It is not the free-market capitalism of liberal ideals (what you now call libertarians) it is very much the state capitalism which many fascists advocated.

Define fascist economics please? Can it exists outside of the context - ie not liberal free-markets and not marxist socialism? In the absence of those ideologies having political sway within a country, does fascism have any economic theory of its own?

I should have expected all the white supremacists to like vanilla the best...
You're goddamned right.
One of us
Orathaic, I won't be able to do this justice at all on a phone, but I'll try.
Short answer is that fascism, as an economic system, is a market economy where the State has very broad power and authority to intervene in the market "in the interest of the Nation." This sounds like a "normal" contemporary capitalist system, and in a lot of ways it is, but in normal systems interventions are generally much more pragmatic -- an intervention to avoid a depression or to control inflation.
Essentially, fascist economies are market economies that are subject to a State which sees itself as the representative of a particular Nation.

What Defines A New Player?
Hey everyone i was just browsing the new games to see if there were anything interesting that i could join when i stumbled across a game that had the requirement of 'New Players Only' and i was wondering how to make 'New Player' quantifiable. What is the time between you join till you are considered not a 'New Player.' Or in essence are we all new players?

Why it is always German player
That never pushes ready in Gunboat games?
Like every single time if there is a player that saves his orders early on and waits 24 or 36 hours without pressing ready? Is there any rule that you should not slow game down? Or it is up to players if they want to iritate all others by making a retreat in full turn, and then disbanding the same army/fleet just after that in next full turn?

I hope some of the many GB players that are better than me have opinions about this, especially if they differ from mine.
